Jamaica - Animal husbandry

Livestock has long been important in Jamaica's agricultural life, providing both fertilizer and protein for the local diet. Despite increases in the livestock population and in the production of meat, milk, and poultry, increased demand has resulted in continued imports of livestock products. Livestock holdings in 2001 included some 400,000 head of cattle, 440,000 goats, and 180,000 hogs. Livestock products in 2001 included 105,000 tons of meat (80% poultry) and 28,500 tons of cow's milk.
